ABOUT KK

Katrin Kruse Basel
Hi! I am Kat Kruse. I am a writer, and a Somatic Coach. My work is about the Self, about re-connecting the deep mind to the body. I draw from my superconceptual decade of teaching critical theory and gender studies in academia, my training as a certified Love and Sex Coach, my creative process as a writer and my own embodiment. The process is deep, and deeply joyous. To know more, send me a note.

I studied critical theory, gender studies and literature in Berlin and London. I have an MA in Cultural Studies. I worked as a freelance journalist for taz, die tageszeitung in Berlin, covering the Paris fashion shows for the culture section. I have been an editor for the Sunday edition of NZZ in Zurich, lectured fashion theory and concept to graduate students at the University of the Arts in Basel, and taught trend forecasting at ZHdK, University of the Arts in Zurich. And I am a certified Sex, Love, and Relationship Coach.

I am interested in how we live our lives – how we choose to live, and more often, how we not choose, but live by default. I am intrigued by where this default comes from, and how to shift it.

We tend do divide things strictly: Theory is a genre in itself, somewhat distant from our lived experience. This divide is deeply unhelpful. We need thinking that is both conceptual and embodied. To me, inner freedom requires two things: The ability to go radically meta, and to be totally embodied, both at the same time.

I call this: Embodied Liberation. Come join me.
